Great place to improve you lifestyle in diet and exercise. Have seen excellent improvement in my blood pressure (They took me off my meds) and in my body tone. The new diet is interesting to say the least, but I'm not hungry. ................

Eye opening experience - learned so much about healthful living and are implementing it at home. Room in golf villa was very comfortable. Little walk to the Center building gave comfortable extra exercise though shuttles are available. There are some rooms closer to main building. Spa looked great though we didn't use it except for a shower after using pool.... More

MR. Trump is lucky to have a wonderful staff at Pritikin. Without the staff, this does not come anywhere close to a 5 star spa experience. Try a 2 star.

I spent one week at Pritikin and will attest to the excellent lectures provided. However unless you were a repeat client then think again and expect very low customer service. The staff pro-actively engage with repeat clients only, the difference if it's first time is very apparent particularly if you come on your own. The bedrooms are of a high... More
